Developed by the UNEP-WCMC in partnership with UNDP, and launched at the WIN Conference, this new toolkit presents sixteen case studies highlighting innovative tools and approaches that local communities have developed to address critical challenges affecting their indigenous peoples’ and community conserved territories and areas (ICCAs). The toolkit includes a diverse set of resources organized around five key themes: documentation, management planning, monitoring and evaluation, communication, including TK management, and finance and values. The publication also offers a suite of tools to support the effectiveness and viability of ICCAs as governance structures for the protection of biodiversity and ecosystems.
